"His first album was very good. His second album was OK. But "Fit To Serve" is Croce's best one yet. His vocals sound stronger here, but even more important, the songs are much better. Croce can play a mean barrelhouse type piano too. He's the kind of guy you might see playing behind the chicken wire in an old roadhouse somewhere. Unlike his more folk oriented dad, Croce is a tougher, hard edged blues/r&b/soul player. This guy can both ravage your soul and touch your heart with his music. What I like most about this album is that it retains the raw energy of a live show. Good examples of this are the jumpy tunes "I Don't Mind", "I'll Get Through", "Texas Ruby" (a good one), and the very Ray Charles-like "Judgement Day". He saves his best for last on "Nobody Else". A great song with heart-tugging lyrics about the battle of kicking alcohol. This is an excellent album by an artist who obviously has a great love for his craft. I have a feeling one day everyone is going to catch on to this guys music, and he'll eventually get his "time in a bottle". He's just too talented to go unnoticed for long. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy "Fit To Serve". His best album to date, and it comes highly recommended.!"
That People critique is way-off

"A.J., like the consensus shows, is not like his father and should not be compared in any way (unless genetically) A.J's albums are fantastic. My suggestion is to buy his first (self-titled "A.J Croce")and work through to this one (there are 3 total) Just give him a chance and you will certainly not be dissapointed. Don't go into this expecting "time in a bottle" or having an extremely narrow mind like the above mentioned People Critic. What you will get is a fresh new sound of Jazz/blues and Rock & Roll. I am very surprised that his albums have not received more attention."

"I am a fan from France (so sorry for my english). I heard AJ's 1st album on french tv channel and then I became a fan ! His voice is so incredible and his blues/jazz sound is so deep ! My favorite is his 1st and 3rd album and I really expect a show soon in France ! This last Album will enjoy you !"
